Long story made short: Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard's Cabin in the Woods has been pushed back a year by MGM. The original date for the horror comedy was Feburary 5, 2010. But now you'll be checking into this Cabin on April 15, 2011. Why? The reason after the jump. MGM reps have told our friends at Shock Till You Drop that "the early response to the film has been phenomenal and they're going to spend six months or so converting the picture to 3-D." Never mind the fact that audiences aren't nearly as into 3-D as studio chiefs (because the format can't be easily pirated), this is sure to piss off the legions of Whedon fans who feel let down by Dollhouse and want some »
With 3-D all the rage, MGM announced over the weekend that Joss Whedon’s original thriller, The Cabin in the Woods, will be delayed from February 5 2010 to January 14 2011 to allow it to be upgraded to a three-dimensional chiller.
According to Shock Til You Drop, the film, co-written and directed by Drew Goddard (Cloverfield), will require six months for the conversion. The movie stars Bradley Whitford (The West Wing), Richard Jenkins (Burn After Reading), Chris Hemsworth (Star Trek), and Whedon regulars Amy Acker (Angel, Dollhouse) and Tom Lenk (Buffy) »

The Cabin in the Woods, a twisted and unusual take on the usual formula, was written by Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Serenity's Joss Whedon and directed by Cloverfield screenwriter Drew Goddard. The movie was initially set for release on February 5, 2010, but ShockTillYouDrop reports that MGM Studios has decided to push the movie back to January 14, 2011.
The good news is MGM claims the response to the movie has been "phenomenal," and will take the next six months to convert the movie into 3-D. The bad news is that Whedon fans will have to wait another year for the highly anticipated horror flick. To make matters worse, Cabin actor Brian White (Fighting) told Moviehole the movie is terrific.
He's created a new take on the "Cabin in the Woods" formula and it's incredibly funny, it's gory, and it's smart. Any genre fan is going to really, really going to love this. »

MGM has announced this afternoon that the Joss Whedon scripted high-concept horror/slasher "The Cabin In The Woods" has been bumped from it's planned February 2010 date and will now arrive in theaters on January 14, 2011. Another surprise is that they'll be turning the Drew Goddard ("Cloverfield") directed project 3-D for its release. The Cabin story line provides a new twist on a classic scenario -- in this case the young-people-stranded-in-the-woods horror trope. »
How long have we been waiting for Joss Whedon’s movie, The Cabin in the Woods? It doesn’t matter because we’re going to have to wait another year.
MGM has pushed back the opening of The Cabin in the Woods from February 5th, 2010 to January 14th, 2011 because they’ve decided to convert The Cabin in the Woods to 3-D.
MGM has been noted in saying that the early response to The Cabin in the Woods has been so good that they’ve made the decision to convert the film to 3D since 3D is a great platform for horror flicks.
Of course, if 3D is going to look as good as it could, it usually needs to be applied while they’re filming a project, not at post-production time. I’m not holding my breath on this.
This seems odd to this fervent Joss Whedon fan and I »

MGM has announced this afternoon that the Joss Whedon scripted high-concept horror/slasher The Cabin In The Woods has been bumped from it's planned February 2010 date and will now arrive in theaters on January 14, 2011. Another surprise is that they'll be turning the Drew Goddard (Cloverfield) directed project 3-D for its release. Why such a major move? There is no reason given, but it's never a good thing for a horror movie. The Cabin story line provides a new twist on a classic scenario -- in this case the young-people-stranded-in-the-woods horror trope. Chris Hemsworth, Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford, Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams and Brian White all star. »
Various sources have been reporting today that the Joss Whedon-produced horror film The Cabin In The Woods has had its release date moved by a year by MGM, and Collider.com has the reasons why. It all has to do with the fact that when the movie does open, it’ll be in 3-D.
Not only does the studio need six months to dimensionally convert the film (which was shot in 2-D), but there are so many 3-D flicks coming out in 2010 that there was simply no slot that year where it could get the required screens. (New Line recently dropped its 3-D Friday The 13th Part 2 into August 13.) So Cabin got shifted from next February 5 all the way to January 14, 2010. That Martin Luther King Day weekend is also a good-luck slot for Drew Goddard, who directed Cabin from his and Whedon’s screenplay; Cloverfield, which he scripted, opened »

The plot device of adults protecting children is a time-honored subject in horror films. An omnipresent evil plotting and casting its inky tendrils toward the young and innocent has been seen in films as diverse as John Schlesinger’s Santeria-inflected The Believers, the Dean Koontz adaptation The Servants Of Twilight and Chuck Russell’s misguided Bless The Child. The defense of youth inspires the most protective of emotions in audiences, and the latest film to tap into these specific emotions is Paramount’s supernatural thriller Case 39.
Directed by German up-and-comer Christian Alvart, who first attracted attention with his serial-murder saga Antibodies and subsequently helmed this fall’s sci-fi chiller Pandorum, from a script by Pulse’s Ray Wright, Case 39 stars Oscar-winner Renee Zellweger, Deadwood’s Ian McShane and ubiquitous young actress Jodelle Ferland. After numerous delays (and release in numerous other international territories this winter), the film will open in U. »

Joss said that in the premiere of Dollhouse’s second season, we’ll get to see Echo cycle through a few imprints during an assignment. I can’t say anymore of what I do know without possible Spoilers. So we’ll leave it at that.
As for being left alone by Fox to do what he wants with Dollhouse? Joss says he’s afraid to be alone (joke) but that the show is finally more of the collaborative effort between creator and network that it’s supposed to be.
Oh, didn’t we mention that before? If you remember, they made note of it at Comic-Con. Alexis Denisof is coming on board to play a politician whose looking into Rossum. »

Warning! No Spoilers Ahead! Seriously, don.t worry. We.re going to talk about this movie without ruining anything. To do otherwise would be brutally unfair to the writers, who deserve to have their movie unfold as it was meant to be seen, up on screen, not here in the midst some self-serving blogger.s reverie. So read on. Anything which follows won.t be of the spoiler variety and anything specific I tell you about the movie won.t be a surprise beyond the film.s first five or ten minutes. Co-written by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard (who will also direct), The Cabin in the Woods is exactly what you.d expect from a Joss Whedon scripted movie and probably nothing like you.d expect from any other horror movie called The Cabin in the Woods. Though it contains heavy slasher elements and though it.s likely to »
We've got a little piece of news regarding the forthcoming trailer debut for The Cabin In The Woods, MGM's high concept slasher film arriving in theaters next February. Co-writer and producer Joss Whedon tells Sci Fi Wire, "We're talking about what they're going to show, and they'll start giving up some information to get people into the theaters. We're working on that now. Should be soon." Bloody Disgusting did some checking and learned that plans are to release the trailer at the end of October. Details are still being ironed out. Directed by Drew Goddard (Coverfield), the "Cabin" story line provides a new twist on a classic scenario -- in this case the young-people-stranded-in-the-woods horror trope. »

One Variety report about The Twilight Saga: Eclipse casting, and the Twilight world knows her name. She is Jodelle Ferland, and she has recently been announced (by both Variety and herself) as a new cast member for the third in the Twilight film series ... Ultimately, despite Carlisle’s extension of an offering to care for and develop Bree’s, ahem, socially responsible behavior, the Volturi guard present after the battle will not allow for it (pennance for her work with Victoria (to be portrayed by Bryce Dallas Howard in the film) and her newborn army). In fact, she is killed by Felix (portrayed by Daniel Cudmore, presumably) on Jane (Dakota Fanning)’s orders ... a friend to current The Twilight Saga: New Moon Volturi star Cameron Bright, ... starlet Kristen Stewart in The Messengers. ... Silent Hill, Case 39, The Cabin In The Woods »
Yep. The Twilight Saga: New Moon isn't even out yet, but in a few short days, the third chapter in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse begins shooting with director David Slade (30 Days Of Night) at the helm. Bryce Dallas Howard was recently announced for the cast, and now Variety reports that young actress Jodelle Ferland has been cast as "a recently turned vampire". (Theories anyone?) She's already earned quite a list of genre credits which include Silent Hill, The Messengers, Seed, They, an episode of Supernatural, Bloodrayne 2, Case 39 & The Cabin In The Woods.
In The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob — knowing that her decision »
The 14-year-old actress may not be a name you'd recognize right off the 'bat, but when you see her list of credits, you'll be surprised at her level of genre cred...
Since beginning acting in 2000, Ferland has appeared in: The Cabin In The Woods, Case 39, Bloodrayne II: Deliverance, The Messengers, Seed, Masters Of Horror, Silent Hill, Kingdom Hospital, Supernatural, Dead Like Me, Carrie (the 2002 TV version), and more.
Either she is the Demon Seed, or the horror gods have shined upon her!

This is starting to make us nervous… Fango just got the word that Universal Pictures’ new version of The Wolfman, which was originally slated for an April 3 release this year and then got shifted to November 6, has been bumped a second time. Now it seems we’re going to have to wait till 2010 to check it out.
The Wolfman, starring Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins and Emily Blunt, directed by Joe Johnston and featuring makeup FX by Rick Baker, is currently slated to hit theaters next February 12. That gets it out of the way of Summit’s competing (albeit younger-skewing) lycanthropicture The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which arrives Nov. 20, and has it following Joss Whedon’s much-anticipated The Cabin In The Woods by a week. You can see the film’s official site here. In Wolfman’s place, Universal will open the Milla Jovovich-starrer The 4th Kind Nov. 6; directed by Olatunde Osunsanmi, »

The first three teaser posters for the Joss Whedon-produced horror The Cabin In The Woods have arrived online. Released at the Con, and courtesy of Shock 'Till You Drop, the pics are sprinkled with suitably Whedon-style wit skewering the cliche conventions of horror movies. Hopefully Whedon and co-writer/director Drew Goddard are taking the same approach to the film itself. We'll find out early next year... For now, take a gander at the posters and tell us your thoughts. .

Judging from these early teaser posters, Joss Whedon (Serenity) and Drew Goddard (Cloverfield) are taking a tongue-in-cheek approach with their old-school horror flick The Cabin In The Woods. Despite these Comic Con peeks, not much has been revealed about the movie except that it involves college kids experiencing terror and death at the location of the title. It features familiar guys like Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford and Keith David, plus a whole bunch of fresh young victims (including future Thor Chris Hemsworth). »

The advice printed on these posters for "The Cabin in the Woods," an upcoming horror flick directed by Drew Goddard and written by Goddard and Joss Whedon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer" TV series) is not of the "good" variety. In fact, if you've seen even one horror movie in your life, then you know that heeding these words will likely lead you to a gruesome, untimely death.
"If you hear a strange sound outside... have sex." Seriously? Ever hear of this dude named Jason? Big guy, scary, wears a hockey mask. Always carries around a filthy teenager-carving machete. Yeah, that sound is probably him. So don't incite his anger if you like to keep your blood inside your body. Hit the jump for two more equally ill-advised posters.
Thanks guys, but I'll pass on the advice. I will happily have the crap scared out of me on February 5, 2010, when "The »
